Showcase Purses for Summer Centerpiece
by Ardith Beveridge, Tastemaker in Residence
For the opera or orchestra after party, any shower or women's get together. The black and white hook is to hang purses on for designing purposes only.
Purse/s of your choice
Floral foam, soaked in water & floral food, in small container, whether square or circular
Clean non-serrated knife
Fresh flowers that meet your fancy
- Give your flowers a fresh cut and place in water to hydrate them
- Cut foam to fit snugly into the container that will hold the water and florals
- You can either place the flowers into the foam, before putting the foam/container into purse or after putting it into the purse, depending on the purse size. Smaller purses may be easier if they have the foam already in the purse, and larger may be easier while the foam is outside of the purse.
- See what works for you- The foliage and flowers can be designed with the purse laying down. (photo below)
- Take flowers that are in floral foam out of purse to refresh, as needed.
